Megan Thee Stallion’s Hot Girl Summer Trademark Approved!
Megan Thee Stallion now owns Hot Girl Summer!
The Houston native coined the phrase earlier this year, and now she’s literally made it her own.
She revealed that her recent application to trademark Hot Girl Summer was approved.
When asked about the trademark in an interview she said,
“Yep, it’s already in the process. It’s trademarked. We did it.”
Just days before, she explained in another interview why she wanted to trademark the phrase to begin with.
“I really didn’t even know that it was gonna catch on how it did. It was just me talking shit, telling everybody I was gonna be me for the summer, and they should be them too, like as free as they can be. When I saw Wendy’s and Forever 21 saying, “Hey, are you having a Hot Girl Summer?” I was like, “Hell no, Forever 21, you’re going to have to pay me.” But I just wanted to get it trademarked because it’s me. It’s my thing.”
She also added how she came up with the term Hot Girl for her fan base, which later served as the inspiration for Hot Girl Summer.
“I’m a hot girl. It’s only right that [my fans] be hotties. I actually gave them a chance to vote for what they wanted it to be, maybe in 2017. It was like between Stallionaires and some whole other s***. I was like, ‘Oh, hell no, you guys are going to be Hotties regardless of what you are all talking about.’ But it [wound up being the] majority; they picked Hotties.”
The trademark, which was filed on July 10, will cover
“merchandise specifically for products such as hoodies, T-shirts and sportswear.”
As for what it means to be a hot girl, Megan defined it on Twitter over the summer.
Now, she’s giving tips for a Hot Girl Semester.
